Your child’s greatest burden
Here’s a Jung quote that made me say “oops:”
“The greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of the parents.”
As if worrying about how my lived life affects my kids isn’t enough. I’ve thought a lot about this quote and can’t find a way to disagree with it and can’t see how this burden avoidable. I’m thinking the burden isn’t all bad, however.
